How to Make YouTube Comments Bold, Italics, and Strike Through (2020)

In this post, we see:

Let’s begin.

How to Comment on a YouTube Video

Go to YouTube. Sign in, if not already. Go to the video you want to comment. Scroll down until you see the “Add a public comment” field. Click on it.

Now enter your comment. Click on the “Comment” button to post your comment. Click on “Cancel” if you don’t want to post your comment.

Notes:

  • The steps to comment on a YouTube video using YouTube for Android and YouTube for iPhone are almost the same as above (you need to tap “Comments” to see the field mentioned above). You can see the “Send” icon (if you’re on Android) or “send” button (if you’re on iPhone) instead of the “Comment” button, which you need to tap to post the comment.
  • A YouTube channel will be created for your account if you leave a YouTube comment for the first time.
  • Your comments are public, which means everyone can see and reply to it.

How to Make YouTube Comments Bold, Italics and Strike Through

  • To make YouTube comment bold, you need to add * (Asterisk) at the beginning and end of the comment. For instance: *Thanks*
  • To make YouTube comment italics, you need to add _ (Underscore) at the beginning and end of the comment. For instance: _Thanks_
  • To make YouTube comment strike through, you need to add – (Hyphen) at the beginning and end of the comment. For instance: -Thanks-

Notes:

  • You can format a letter, word, portion, or whole of YouTube comment.
  • Keep in mind that you need to make sure that there is no text immediately appearing before, between, or after text formatting (for instance: *Thanks*a). Otherwise, it’ll not work.
  • The above steps are for YouTube for Android and YouTube for iPhone. When I try the strike through on YouTube for iPhone, it didn’t work.

How to See Your Comment History on YouTube

Go to this URL. Sign in, if not already. Now, you can view all your YouTube comments.

If you click on the “comment” or “Commented,” then you’ll be taken to that comment. If you click on “Replied,” then you’ll be taken to that reply.

When you hover your mouse over a comment, you can see three vertical dots. Click on it, and you can see two options – “Edit” and “Delete.”

To Edit a YouTube Comment: Click on the “Edit” option. Now, you’ll be taken to the comment, which is ready to edit. Edit the comment as per your liking and then click on “Save.”

Keep in mind that you can see (edited) label beside every edited comment.

The “Delete” option is used to delete a comment.
